2 swim sessions this week, pool nearly empty for early swim so was able to set a half decent time for myself.

Last attempt at 200 on Friday AM - 4 epic thrashes to get under 3:00, missed by seconds every time. Then broke it on the 1st 200 of an easy 400 after giving up as I was getting slower. But as it wasn't technically a 200, I've not recorded it, so 200 time is 3:01.

I've noticed that Foz, almost the harder I try to swim quick then the slower I go, if I concentrate on technique and 'power' then I am just as quick if not quicker

I'm sure it all makes sense to people who know what they are talking about !!

Which I think is why my splits are better on long swims than I can manage straight out! After 15 years of not really doing any training (average annual volume around 10k!)  I've now got my *rse into gear and am banging in multiople sessions per week. Times are getting better as I get stronger and fitter. Hoping to be back down around 23-24 min for 1,500 next year. Which ain't bad for an old 'un! 

Serious start to 2013 run training will be delayed till Mrs F's awesome Christmas cake is finished though.

Swimming only once a week currently, but finding my pace pretty good at the moment.

I set my time for 1500m, now gone down with the lurgy, this activity lark is bad for your health.
